Three young Cockneys take a day off work to meet a foreign movie star at Heathrow airport. She joins them and their taxi driver while she collects some typically British hats. The main rule of the game is to steal a hat from its wearer, so the film is a musical chase around Swinging Sixties London, evading press and police.Written by
I saw this movie on TV about 25 years ago and it stuck in my mind as a great feel good movie and a wonderful representation of 60's London. I can remember some of the songs even now, although I doubt if any have ever been released. There's some brilliant street 'dance' scenes set to the songs and the whole thing moves along with great pace and energy. The main players; Joe Brown, Una Stubbs, Sid James & Sophie Hardy are all excellent and work together well. I notice that Eric Rodgers wrote the music, he of 'Carry On' Fame which explains the compelling soundtrack. I 've not seen this movie since, which I assume means it's not that popular and that's a shame.
